Drox Operative is a space-based RPG with warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic, evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer. The game is now available for pre-order at a reduced price of $14.99. With your pre-order purchase, you will gain access to the latest beta build, forums for feedback, and the final game when it is released.
A bit more about the game from the company itself since they know more about it than anyone:
Eons ago the Drox ruled the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost necessary. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox built a starlane system for quick travel amongst the stars, colonized and conquered millions of planets, and ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat, they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed. The following Galactic Civil War was devastating.
Thousands of years later, the Drox are extinct, but the secretive Drox Operative guild lives on. They have learned their lesson though: loyalty to any one race is foolish. They now work for whoever can pay. And pay they do! Empires might span hundreds of planets and thousands of ships, but when a critical task arises, they still turn to an Operative
It's a smaller studio release which is why you gain access to the beta when pre-ordered. It looks like a pretty cool game, but I'm sure it won't have quite the fit and finish of a major studio. That said, some of the most fun games I played at E3 came from small studios such as this one. Indie games are often willing to push the boundaries of traditional games.
The game is available directly from the studio on their website. If you think you will end up buying the game when it comes out, you might think about buying it now. It's at a reduced price and comes with perks that you wouldn't otherwise get. You even get to help sway the game design before the final release.
